La Isla Foundation
November 25, 2012

La Isla Foundation is committed not only to providing relief to the families and communities devastated by Chronic Kidney Disease, but also to understanding the systemic failures that lead to the crisis, and advocating for policy level change to end it once and for all. I have worked with several development organizations and non-profits in Central America, but never have I found one as committed to creating a model for long-term systemic level change as LIF. As a volunteer, I can say that LIF puts volunteers, interns, and students to work in meaningful ways to challenge and expand their skill set as few other organizations can. As a board member, I am proud to say that we hold ourselves to the highest standards of transparency, organization and management at every level. I can attest to the dedication and commitment of each of the staff who work tirelessly for very little compensation to put as much of every dollar raised as possible back into the community. We hope that the lessons we are learning will serve as a model for addressing similar problems in the future.
